Wearable Electronics with Becky Stern 2/18/2015 – LIVE 2pm ET
Join Becky Stern and friends every week as we delve into the wonderful world of wearables, live on YouTube. We’ll answer your questions, announce a discount code for the Adafruit store, and explore wearable components, techniques, special materials, tools, and projects you can build at home! Ask your wearables questions in the comments, and if your question is featured on a future episode, you’ll be entered to win the show giveaway!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Hey, great show.
I’m interested in doing a solar hat wearable project and so I wanted to use a Flora to manage battery charging. I was planning on using the analogue inputs to monitor the battery and panel voltages through voltage dividers, to inform switching charging on and off. Do you perceive any issues or have any suggestions about this approach?
I have had a go at a basic prototype, but I found significant inconsistancies in the analogue input readings. Are there any differences between the analogue inputs and their current requirements that could be causing this. The Flora is new, so I was not thinking that it was a fault with the Flora board at this stage.
